The great Louis C.K. kicked off the show with some brilliant standup in the monologue that attacked people who say “they’re starving,” crappy kids’ plays, why men beat women, solves the age old question of “Which came first the chicken or the egg,” reveals that there is no heaven, and did God kill his wife?
SNL cast members Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant are Lez Dykawitz and Chubbina Fatzarelli in an 80’s cop drama called “Dyke & Fats.” Louis is their police chief who makes the mistake of calling them “Dyke & Fats,” but gets in trouble because “Those are our words and only we get to say it!”
C.K. is Mark, a professor of African-American history at Brigham Young and the one white contestant on “Black Jeopardy.” He struggles mightily when the categories include “It’s Been A Minute” and “PSSH.”
Louis C.K. is surprisingly involved in a musical skit where very opinionated and strong women serenade sing Jean Knight’s 1970 hit song “Mr. Big Stuff” when all he wants is directions to the bank.
